Watch Katie Ledecky swim with chocolate milk balanced on her head

Despite the postponement of the 2020 Toyko Olympics, Katie Ledeky is still achieving great things this summer.

The DMV native and Team USA swimmer posted a video on her Instagram on Monday where she swam the length of a pool with a glass of chocolate milk balanced on her head –– one of her many impressive feats that has shocked the world.

The 23-year-old swimmer has taken DMV area and the nation by storm after she first appeared in the 2012 London Olympics and won gold in the 800m freestyle at the age of 15. She quickly became a fan favorite and gained popularity four years later when she cleaned up in Rio de Janeiro, winning four gold medals and a silver. In Rio, she also set two world records in the 400 and 800m freestyle events.

After the International Olympic Committee announced their decision to postpone until 2021, Ledecky spoke out, saying it was the right decision.

"We're all happy that we know now and can take a step back, stay inside and do our part to help fight this virus and support those who are the true heroes doing everything they can to heal the sick and to find ways to stop the spread," she said. "We're going to do what we can to stay in shape, but the real training has to take a backseat right now."

Since quarantine began, she has faced obstacles of training during times of social distancing but, like many other Olympians, has done what she can during these limiting times to prepare for the year ahead.

While Ledecky was unable to compete on a global stage as expected this year due to COVID-19, she continues to find a way into the national spotlight as she prepares to dominate again in 2021.

Formula One driver Sergio Perez tests positive for coronavirus, will miss British Grand Prix

Formula One driver Sergio Perez has tested positive for coronavirus and will miss the British Grand Prix this weekend, the racing federation announced on Twitter. 

Perez is now isolating and so are other crew members that were in close contact with the driver, according to multiple reports. Since returning amidst the pandemic, the federation has implemented a Track and Trace app that helps all participants at the race track identify who they were in close confines with. 

Drivers are not permitted to intermingle from different teams to avoid an outbreak. F1 does not believe this positive test "will have no wider impact on this weekend's event."

Perez's test result comes in the midst of a two-week break for the sport. The Hungarian Grand Prix on July 19 was the last F1 race and to that point, it was not revealed if any driver had tested positive for the virus. Only two other individuals have tested positive under Formula 1's testing system.

The Mexican driver is a part of the two-car Racing Point team and RP is expected to name a replacement driver for the event. Canadian Lance Stroll is the second primary driver for Racing Point.

Formula One came back from the COVID-19 pandemic on July 5 and has put in place strict health and safety protocols to prevent the possibility of an outbreak. 

There is no timetable on when Perez will be able to return to racing action. He enters the weekend sixth in points and has placed in a points-paying position in each of the three races this season.
